  • Athenians sweep Sagamore meet
    Tuesday, January 17, 2017 4:00 AM
    You can have all the individual talent in the world, but it’s almost impossible to win without the support of a near equally talented team. Crawfordsville High School proved this to be true Monday at the Sagamore Athletic Conference swim meet. Crawfordsville cruised to wins in both the girls and boys meets. Crawfordsville won all but one of the relays. 
    The next best county team was Southmont whose girls’ team finished in fifth and boys’ team claimed a solid third place finish. Southmont’s girls’ 400 yard freestyle team was the only one able to take a relay victory away from Crawfordsville. North Montgomery came in seventh with their girls’ team and fifth with their boys’ team. North had two seniors that were able to win individual events to make their final year a memorable one.

  •  Chargers dominate SAC
    Tuesday, January 17, 2017 4:00 AM
    LINDEN- It was a record breaking afternoon as the North Montgomery Chargers dominated the Sagamore Athletic Conference wrestling meet. They broke the record of most points scored in the SAC with 290. The Chargers were the clear victors as they had seven first place finishes, that’s half of the weight classes. They put 12 wrestlers into the finals. The nearest competitor, Lebanon, had four. Southmont came in third place with 205 and Crawfordsville was behind them with 160. 
    “It could have been a little bit better but we wrestled well,” Charger head coach Maurice Swain said. “We talked all week about wanting to do something unheard of. Unheard of would have been putting 14 guys in the championship match at the conference tournament and scoring 300 team points. We got pretty close. We’ve been talking all year about legacy. What legacy is this team going to leave behind? The guys looked good today.”
    North found tremendous success from the lowest weight class to the heaviest. The North wrestlers who won conference championships were Seth Johnson (106), Parker Moseley (113), Jake Lowe (138), Micah Wray (160), Tanner Webster (170), Cole Slavens (195), and Kevin Pierce (285). No other team could keep up with the pure strength and talent of the Chargers.

  • Daryl Warren Part 2
    Tuesday, January 17, 2017 4:00 AM
    Here are some of Daryl Warren’s memories of Bulldog basketball:
    Well, it has been forty-five years ago but, the experience of playing for Linden High School (1968-1971) was incredible. 
    Growing up, I knew all of the great players that came before me like Vail, Waltz, Denhart, Johnson, German, Rice, to name a few. The “buzz” of the community during the winter would always include the local basketball team. By the time we reached high school, it really sank in as to how much the community and especially our parents, looked forward to each season with great excitement. Early in those years we had some struggles winning against some of the other county schools (Darlington in particular--they were very good) but never did it diminish our desire to compete.

    DANVILLE – On a night of falling temperatures, and the threat of freezing rain, No. 6 ranked Danville treated the visiting Chargers to a frosty 59-26 setback, here, Friday night, and handed North Montgomery their third straight Sagamore Athletic Conference loss.
    Icy shooting was an understatement. Danville’s (10-3, SAC 3-0) defense limited the Chargers’ guards to a bitter 4 of 28 shooting, and held North Montgomery’s leading scorer, Caleb Ran-dolph, scoreless from the field. Randolph converted five free throws, and Justin Clary held team high honors with 11.
    On the night, North Montgomery (5-6, SAC 0-3) shot a frigid 18 percent from the floor.

  • Points-a-plenty in Southmont win
    Saturday, January 14, 2017 4:00 AM
    NEW MARKET – A career night for Cam Chadd highlighted a sound all-around performance by the Southmont boys’ basketball team Friday in a win over Seeger, 85-56. Chadd went for 41 points, two shy of the school record, leading a brigade of three Mounties who found double digits. 
    “The guys did a great job of getting him open tonight. They were really hunting shots for him. One of the big things is that he took a lot of shots in the paint,” Southmont head coach Jon Sparks said. “A lot of guys shot well and did good things to free him up. (Cam) is our engine. He does a great job of advancing the ball and getting people set up. I think you’re going to see a rededication to getting to the bucket.”
    Chadd scored 24 of his 41 before halftime, thanks to a 15-point second quarter.

  •  Warriors zone out Chargers
    Saturday, January 14, 2017 4:00 AM
    DANVILLE - For the second consecutive game, North Montgomery’s offense was limited from a 2-3 zone. Much like Greencastle Tuesday, the Chargers struggled and shot just 29 percent from the floor, while Danville had the hot hand all night, connecting on nearly 50 percent of their shots as they opened up a big lead early and cruised to a 71-30 girls’ basketball win. 
    The victory allows the Warriors to stay tied atop the Sagamore Athletic Conference standings, with Tri-West, at 5-0, while the Chargers fall to 3-2.
    “We came out flat and a little hesitant and never recovered,” North Montgomery head coach Ryan Nuppnau said. “We didn’t attack their 2-3 zone, and they were knocking down their shots.”

    ATTICA- The Lady Mounties Basketball team travelled to Attica Thursday night. An all-around team effort led to a Southmont victory 37-25.
    Kasey Burton was a key component for South’s win. She led the team with 12 points while also contributing 13 rebounds. Burton wasn’t the only star last night. Reagan Case, with 11 points, and Avery Hess, with 8 points, were able to contribute in helping swing the tide in the Mounties favor.
    South (8-9, 0-3 SAC) take on the North Putnam at home on Tuesday January 17.

    Each school will begin ticket sales on Tuesday, Jan. 17 during normal school hours. 
    Single session tickets (one game only) are $10. Because of the size of the gym (680 seats) the gym will be cleared after each game and the fans for the next game will enter when emptied. They have asked that you arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before your game. You will not be able to enter the gym until it is cleared from the previous game. All seats are general admission.

  •   Finals set for SAC swim meet
    Friday, January 13, 2017 4:00 AM
    The excitement is building as the SAC swimming preliminaries took place Thursday night. The results were mostly as expected. Montgomery County has some of the best swimmers in the conference and this was shown by how many events had top finishers from a local school. 
    Southmont senior Madison Wickholm earned the second seed in the 200 free and she was the fastest Thursday in the 500 free. Fellow Mountie, freshman Jane Scheidler took the top seed in the 50 and 100 freestyles. Athenian Mackenzie Bowen is the second see in the 100 back.

    If you were at Saturday’s Sugar Creek Classic Championship game at Southmont between the host Mounties and the Crawfordsville Athenians, you saw a classic. If the game was broadcast on ESPN, they would’ve had a replay later that evening after the Sportscenter, and it would’ve still received great ratings even at 2 a.m.
    I’d love to discuss the game with you, but I’m sure you’ve heard, or read, all about it. If you weren’t there, you missed a great game. From Cam Chadd and Kaleb Swick’s big three’s to tie it up, to Trent Johnson finding James Gineris for the game winner.
    Now, if you missed that one, you’re in luck. The two teams will meet again a week from tomorrow, January 21 at Crawfordsville. The girls will start off the night around 6 p.m. followed by the boys game around 8 p.m.. Do yourself a favor, the rematch may be as good as advertised, just like this past Saturday’s game.

    Athletes from Montgomery County’s boys’ basketball teams will get a taste of history this season. A change to the schedule is sending North Montgomery, Crawfordsville and Southmont – and seven other teams – to the Hoosier Gym in Knightstown on Jan. 28 for a one-day extravaganza. Plans were finalized Wednesday, but have been in the works for longer.
    “The fact that our kids get to play in that gym – I would say they’ve all seen the movie – for them to be able to play in that gym and for our community to have the opportunity to watch them there is a great opportunity,” Crawfordsville Athletic Director Bryce Barton said. “The coaches and kids are very excited for this experience.”

    If you didn’t attend the final game of the 2017 Boys Sugar Creek Classic at Southmont, last Sat-urday, you might be growing weary of hearing about it. I grant you, if you were not there, all the rehashing may seem like hyperbole. It is not.
    The fuss is deserved. And to me that is a story in itself.

    DANVILLE – While the North Montgomery boys’ basketball team isn’t in a prime position in the Sagamore Athletic Conference ranks, they could cause quite a stir with an upset Friday. 
    The Chargers (5-5, 0-2 SAC) will travel to Danville (9-3, 2-0 SAC) looking to knock off the very strong Warriors. They haven’t had much success in that area recently, however. Danville has won 14 of the last 19 meetings between the teams and defeated the Chargers 70-40 a year ago. 
    Danville is ranked 10th in the latest Class 3A rankings and is coming in off two consecutive losses to Hendricks County rival Plainfield. The Warriors are scoring at a 59-point-per game clip and have depth top to bottom. The Warrior defense is even better, limiting opponents to just 50 points-per-game. 
    The Chargers score 55-a-game, but are giving up an average of 64 an outing.
